    oh yeah, the one in Jersey, my bad it sounded like someone was describing the same site.

    And Concur, be careful. That area has some dickhead cops and uptight ass nosy neighbors. I've been harassed there a few times for no good reason, I can't even imagine what would happen if they got me trespassing. Mullica on the other hand is hardly patrolled.

    Idk if you read this recent article, (In reference to the Lenox China building)

    Know any in Saskatchewan?

    Out of all of them, I'd definitely recommend this one if you're nearby, be sure you bring the right equipment though.

    Ah, Uranium City is hours away from me. People still live there, though I believe It's less than 100 population. I only know this because my friend moved there (I'm not sure why)

    Edited:

    There is absolutely no summer road access. There are some extremely rough winter roads that include ice roads. They are only open for a couple months a year during the coldest part of winter. I would recommend a rather large 4*4 to get there in the winter. It also takes about 15 - 20 hours of continuous difficult driving to get there from Prince Albert.
    Definitely can't go

    I don't really have any spare time, but I've always been interested in this kind of exploration. Just looking at the pictures is cool and I can't imagine what kind of awesome it would be to actually do it. Does anybody know of any good places in Western MA? Not really an urban area, but I still think there could be potential, although I don't really know where to start looking. Thoughts?

    Monroe Massachusetts has the John Ramage Paper Mill, which looks like it might be interesting. From what I've heard the police monitor it pretty closely however. Where in Western MA exactly? You could also go check out the Hoosac Tunnel, which isn't too far from Monroe.

    I'm right around Amherst and Springfield. It's mostly foresty places, which makes me skeptical about the possibility of good urbex places. That, combined with my total lack of gear and free time, is what's keeping me from really pursuing this. But I think it would be good to have a few of these places on record in case I decide to do it in the future.

    Me and a friend are going to try to get into urbex next month. It's not going to be a long time thing, just for next month and that's it. But neither of us know much about what to plan for. Can anyone give us tips, or show us some sites/resources that may help us out?

    I know this little place near a Church, which use to be a boy scouts hall, it is closed, I want to go exploring there, I do not know what to do to avoid getting caught. And what should I take besides Water, Torch and a Camera? Oh and mobile.

    I know one of the cardinal rules of urbex is "leave nothing but footprints" etc etc, but would it still be bad if one were to leave something nice, say, a large box filled with kitkats?

    This was a picture I took of an old abandoned building in a shitty town near my area. I am planning on exploring it a bit sometime, but I don't really know what kind of gear to bring and what not.

    There's actually very little to explore around here in southern California (at least the Irvine/Newport area, might head up to LA at some point for real abandoned buildings). The only thing we managed to find so far are a set of abandoned rail road tracks that curve through what are now industrial buildings and some office buildings. We got stopped by some cops because there were a bunch of burglaries in the area recently and we looked pretty suspicious. They were pretty nice though, let us go after taking our information down and searching us (and my camera bag) even though one of us was still 17 and we were out past curfew by an hour.

    Got some cool shots (some of which I had to save in RAW format and digitally increase the exposure/light fill, since my camera's flash wasn't travelling far enough), but by no means threadworthy:







    Edited:

    I'm going to be in the Troy, NY area in the fall for college (RPI). Anyone know of any cool spots over there?

    I hate the lack of explorable buildings at my home. When I was really young I always sneaked into buildings and constructions with some pals of mine. It was really great, although the place were never really abandoned. Once we even managed to get into an fully working office from a construction site on. That was really a major flaw in the security, if some teenagers could get into this.

    My homecountry, Luxembourg, is really small and nearly every usable space is being used for constructions and whatnot. So you never really have old buildings standing around. Although there are tons of awesome bunkers and shelters from World War II.

    Also I study in Tyrol in Austria, but I live in a large town. The issue there is that the whole sourroundings is consisted by large mountains and forests. Nothing more so here you have nothing to look at.

    Well, the last time I went home during holidays, 3 friends, my girlfriend and I investigated a abandoned house in the countryside. There are many rumors that it is haunted, some friends of mine went there and claimed that after parking near the house. The car had fingerprints all over it and such, I do not really believe him but still.

    Well we went during night and we did not exactly know how to get there, so we were equiped with our flashlights and investigated. We went into a forest and discovered something really odd. Unfortunately I have no pictures of it.

    Anyway we discovered an old gate that was half broken and locked with a simply metalpole that was bent around. It looked fairly odd, there was simply a rectangle of forest on a field, the only somewhat clear entrance was that gate. It was very hard to see through that small bit of forest, the trees and hedges were to dense. Anyway we tried to find light the place up with your flashlights and we saw a fucking door right in the middle of that rectangular forest.

    We were scared shitless, because it was so fucking creepy. There were also tons of noises around, boars and deers are often a common sight. Well we opened the gate but we did not manage to penetrate the woods, also somehow our batteries went low and well without light, we were pretty much fucked.

    Also a friend and my girlfriend claimed to have seen red eyes that simply vanished after a lightening the area around it. Well it was certainly weird that night.

    I wish we had more buildings like this in Canberra. I used to live in an old goldmining Boom-town. It was fucking awesome. There was abandoned Gas-Works from the 1800's, old mining equipment lying around in huge sheds just outside of town, in the middle of the bush. It was fucking amazing, but then we moved here when i was 12, so i never got to experience that.

    Going to check out this place soon.


    Forest Haven Asylum, Maryland USA. My research so far says that some fucked up stuff happened here. Experiments with kids and brain surgery. People apparently try not to remove paperwork, so records can still be found of the fucked up stuff that happened. Some of the ground level shots I've found prove promising.


    Any advice, or stories?
    Also, my buddy is going to record this, so I'll be sure to post a video.

    Mostly, I'm interested in hearing if anyone has been here and could give me a little more insight into the condition of the buildings, security, ect. Just doing my research.

    while i cant say i knew what i was doing, back in the 90s when i was like 10ish my dad used to drag me around everywhere because survayed for potential locations for family dollar stores, anyway, they tend to put them in the creepiest most abandoned hellholes out there. ive seen tons of abandoned malls, discos, bowling alleys, bars, even a few blockbusters (those were funny stories....) all i can say is old freight convayerbelts are fun to ride on, this was years ago though, i didnt know it was a hobby today.

    one i remember particularly though was this blockbuster looking place in detroit, it had been so mouse infested that they gased the place, and gess who was the first to go in once it was safe, <--- this guy, anyway imagine a blockbuster, empty with no shelves, with litteraly swiss cheese walls, thousands of holes in the drywall and probably close to a thousand dead mice everywhere. images like that kinda stuck with me after all these years. i also remember an abandoned mall where we were able to run around and jump in the empty fountains and nobody was around

    one of these days when im on break i should go urbexing in the old schools around my home, the school district i went to was originaly like 20 k-12 schools, and theres still 4-5 still standing abandoned and probably unowned because they closed the last of them in 2005 and sold them in 2006 to developers but then the housing market crashed and so did the growth in my tiny town
    really looking for a late 1960s fallout shelter sign
